An Introduction to the “She is King” Series

I would rather brothers call you queen than bitch, but if the intent behind it is motivated by sex, then genuine is probably not, so that’s why I said the queen’s dead, so I call you a soldier instead  - Bambu

This chorus replays in my head as ink borders my characters’ spirit eyes. Among the many reasons why I started the She is King series, Bambu’s song “Q.U.E.E.N.” led me to rethink the word “queen.” Bambu argued that even with such a mighty single word, it can easily become meaningless simply by the lips that release it. What good is recognizing a queen without a respect for one?

Besides, it is time we womyn profess a higher title.

To me, queen, despite a positive connotation, still implies a level below the other and a dependency for him. Everyone, man or womyn, should be able to reach their highest potential without the oppressions of a title. We too can lead others out of darkness. We too can provide for our family, our kingdom. And last time I checked, we’ve been fighting a stronger fight to protect our temples. 

That’s why I said the queen’s dead, so I call you a soldier instead

We are not only soldiers. We are kings.

The queen is dead…

Three talented womyn, Bernadette Bernacer and Melissa Batesting of the Company and Empire Team’s very own Aiko Tanzawa, recently blessed us with a collaboration for the Golden collection. In a matter of a few hours, they came together and created choreography for us to share with all of you.

Thank you again to Bernie, Mell, and Aiko!
Special shout-outs to Christopher and Raymond for putting the video together!
